Meet the security researcher exposing cybercriminals behind devastating hacks and ransomware attacks. CISA and Ukrainian cyber officials pledge to work more closely together to confront Russia. And Congress wants answers about a U.S. federal courts breach. This is CyberScoop for July 29.

The security researcher unmasking cybercriminals

A security researcher known as pancak3 — or @pancak3stack on Twitter — has spent the last few months doxxing cybercriminals on Twitter, hoping to spur accountability for a group of hackers notoriously beyond the reach of western law enforcement. Pancak3 took the effort to new heights last weekend and launched a Substack newsletter highlighting the criminals, which include ransomware developers, initial access brokers and others. "Uncovering the person behind the keyboard, the person responsible for the crimes, is my ultimate goal," they said. "I feel like too many of these people think [they’re] invisible or invincible, but they’re not." AJ Vicens reports.

CISA, Ukrainian cyber officials enhance partnership

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and Ukraine's state cybersecurity agency revealed a new enhanced partnership this week. The agencies will launch joint training exercises and begin exchanging more detailed technical information, moves that a press release from the Ukrainian State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection called an "important step towards the integration of Ukrainian cyber defenders into the global expert environment."

DOJ national security chief backs antitrust bill

Assistant Attorney General for National Security Matthew Olsen told the House Judiciary Committee Thursday that he supports pending antitrust legislation to diminish the power of big tech despite national security concerns raised by some in the intelligence community. Olsen told Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., the chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law Subcommittee, that he agrees with a March letter the Justice Department’s legislative affairs office sent to the committee supporting the American Innovation and Choice Online Act. Suzanne covers it.

Congress wants answers on court breach

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said Thursday that it wasn't until March of this year that the committee learned about the "startling breadth and scope" of an early 2020 U.S. federal courts data breach. "Perhaps even more concerning is the disturbing impact this security breach had on pending civil and criminal litigation, as well as ongoing national security or intelligence matters," said Nadler, a Democrat from New York. The revelations came during a committee hearing on oversight of the Department of Justice National Security Division. Matthew Olsen, the assistant attorney general for national security, said he "couldn't think of anything in particular" when asked how many cases in his division were effected as part of the breach. AJ has more details.

White House cyber official calls Saudi key ally

White House cyber and national security official Anne Neuberger said Thursday that President Biden's recent and controversial trip to Saudi Arabia yielded important results in the cybersecurity realm. Neuberger, the White House deputy national security adviser for cyber and emerging technology, didn’t mention murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi during the interview. Instead she focused on how working with the Saudis will bolster American cybersecurity by helping to block the Chinese telecom giant Huawei from installing next generation 5G and 6G networks in the Middle East and Africa.
